Disability Studies @CDSLeeds this week…

As part of the Leverhulme-funded international network on Combatting Young Disabled People’s Worklessness, led by Professor Alan Roulstone, a US symposium was hosted by Cornell University’s Employment and Disability Institute. Alongside Cornell staff, the event was joined by colleagues from across North America including Curtis Richards, former assistant secretary of state for disability issues in the Clinton administration. Alan and Dr Sarah Woodin will co-ordinate further country seminars during 2014 in the Netherlands and the Czech Republic.
